Review for INSTITUTE FOR FOOD AND DEVELOPMENT POLICY INC, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

If a bad feeling comes up during your lectures, while watching the news or driving through profitable rural landscapes, the institute will help you locate it, help you explain it for youselves, and help you find out what to do about it. There is a wealth of information that concerns anyone who feels uncomfortable with the status quo.

Food First deals with the symptoms of the problem, the problem itself, but also with a wide range of solutions under the name of 'agroecology'. Therefore, although you will learn more and more about famine, poverty and greed, it may well happen that every week at the institite you grow more optimistic. The people at Food First are happy folk, there's good food and conversation over lunch, and I suppose this has to do with the fact that fierce critique goes hand in hand with a proposal. For us young folk, students or simply aroused individuals searching for a sustainable and just future, being at the institute is highly comforting.
